[Dtoid Community Blogger Altum Videtur spends an unfathomable amount of time each month analyzing and recapping everything that gets posted in our Community Blogs, so it's time the man got some recognition. Seriously, what a fantastic feature! Want to see your own words cataloged in next month's Analytics? Go write something! --Mr Andy Dixon]
Arf, arf! Arf arf arf! Arf arf, arf, arf!
What's that, Lassie? No games came out in July, so everybody's getting flustered by sexism controversies instead? Oh no! Well, my mission is still unchanged. Numbers care nothing for misogyny, misandry, or any such accusations; they contain only the distilled truth, free from such hazy and subjective lenses. That's why I failed Algebra in middle school and ended up writing words!
Interestingly, more overall activity happened in this month of no games than in the month of E3. Does that say more about E3, or about us Cbloggers? Who knows; it's for you to decide! If you need some more numbers to help you along your way, don't forget to check last month's edition to see how things changed for July in more detail.
Remember: If there's something I haven't covered that you want to see next month, post it in the comments!

This month, 55 new members posted their first Cblog! (That's 8 more than last month!) Were they good? Bad? Fun? Long? Short? Will they post again? Did they post 12 more times already? There's only one way to find out! In order of appearance, they are:
Ethan Christopher Clevenger - Mikolaj Holowko - lstacey143 - SubjectFletchy - Alex Celeski - Nicky Austin - Craig Ellsworth - DMitsuki - ScottOfTheDead - ZendQ - TerraMantis - Leigh Andrews - Tiq - CharredAsperity - Ursu - RainbowSan - bindingofalex - Jinx 01 - RavePossum - TheRedCometXIII - SkyrimFanatic88 - frankfreeman - ImmortalBard - hobogenized - Jose Gonzalez1 - Suyo - binary revolver - KidMachinate - parameshs - Tony Zhang - OMGWTFBENTIME - Roberto Plankton - darthsnider - terabithia - Esteban Sky Cuevas - guvnor963 - GRabbit - Anaugi - SuperDutchy - WSwan - carlagregson - Zolani13 - Billy Monks - dozygamer - Paul D Simpson - AvalonTreman - GRiVEN - Ktroys - Driesty - Sorrows Neptune - pk fire - JackD - PlayBoyMan - Calibre53
-Until a better method presents itself, statistics are counted by hand, per-day. Comments and Faps are recorded at the end of the next day, to give the community ample time to read and respond. I also do my best to disregard obvious spam-posts, but I can easily miss one or skip over what's actually just a really shoddy and self-aggrandizing but otherwise legit Cblog. This means that there are likely minor errors and inaccuracies present, but none of them should be significant enough to invalidate anything.
-Cblog Recaps and last month's Analytics are not counted, but all other serials (like FNF) are, under the rationale that serials still exist for the purpose of "creating" content under a certain topic or theme, while the Recaps & Analytics merely seek to sort and organize the blogs.
-For the flavor of the month, I do not count Bloggers Wanted or Artists Wanted topics; the statistic is instead recorded separately. A Bloggers Wanted/Artists Wanted topic that covers another popular, non-BW/AW topic is only filed under the BW/AW statistic.
-There is still some inherent subjectivity in deciding what constitutes a "unique topic," so keep that in mind if there seems like there's some obvious category that I've ignored (although feel free to tell me).
-Statistics are not intended to impart any kind of judgment or opinion in and of themselves. If I have any personal thoughts, they are noted below the corresponding statistic.
